Professional Wine Reviews for Reinhold Haart Kabinett Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling 2014

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Goldtröpfchen Kabinett comes from the higher part in the steep Goldtröpfchen and ripens a week earlier than the grand cru (GG). Picked with 87° Oechsle, the 2014 opens with a very clear and aromatic, still somewhat reductive bouquet that indicates a good complexity. Round and lush on the palate, this is a highly delicate and perfectly balanced, extremely stimulating Kabinett that is one the finest you can find in the Mosel. This is so sensual and ripe ins its juicy yellow stone fruit and mango flavors, but also precise and extremely fine and elegant. A beautiful Kabinett!

Winery Reinhold Haart

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes are very rarely blended with others in the development of wines, and for good reason. These pale grapes which originated in the cool Rhine Valley of Germany are notable for their 'transparency' of flavor, which allows the characteristics of their terroir to shine through in wonderful ways. The result of this is a wine which carries a wide range of interesting flavors quite unlike those found in other white wines, finished off with the distinctively floral perfume Riesling supplies so well. Many wineries in Germany and elsewhere tend to harvest their Riesling grapes very late – often as late as January – in order to make the most of their natural sweetness. Other methods, such as encouraging the noble rot fungus, help the Riesling grape varietal present some truly unique and exciting flavors in the glass, and the variety of wines this varietal can produce mean it is one of the finest and most interesting available anywhere.

Country: Germany

Despite being known primarily for sweet and semi-sweet white wines, Germany actually produces a surprisingly large and varied range of wines, with many reaching an extremely high standard and being very well received on the world stage. The terrain across much of the southern parts of the country is extremely fertile, with mineral rich soils adding a wonderful edge to already excellent grapes, and thus resulting in delicious and highly elegant white and rosé wines. The climate in many parts of Germany also allows for some more unusual wine-making practices, with certain regions specializing in the highly aromatic and distinctive 'ice-wines' which are gaining popularity by those looking for something a little more intense and unusual. With these wines, the producers allow the grapes to freeze through the early frosts, resulting in a higher sugar content and a fantastic set of flavors and aromas in the finished product. Germany has long since favored quality over quantity, and a new enthusiasm for fine wine within the country is producing truly exciting results, using a blending of traditional and contemporary techniques.
